on to clarify. but, ana, paul ryan wasted no time, seizing on those comments. good strategy? >> look, you know, i love joe biden. i don't know how every republican in america doesn't love joe biden. he is a great guy. he's fun. he is the gift that keeps on giving. i miss joe biden. we hadn't heard a gaffe from good old joe in about two or three weeks. it really had been a long time. this is what the campaigns are like today in 2012, unfortunately. we look for gaffes on each other and try to make them real big. i think when joe starts getting earnest, when he starts getting righteous and starts talking about god, watch out, because a zinger is coming out. >> speaking of zingers, the debate spoet supposedly is going to be all about zingers. i can see mitt romney taking that line. i would. maria? >> the problem with that, though, carol, is that if you know joe biden and what he has done in his career, he has actually been one of the strongest spokespersons for the middle class and for working americans. and if you look at what he said, if you look at it in context, he clearly is talking about how
're making me do my homework. >> reporter: joe biden and paul ryan don't debate until next week. so they're on the trail representing their campaigns this tuesday, biden in north carolina and ryan in iowa of jennifer davis, fox news. >> you can watch that first presidential debate on fox 5 at 9:00 tomorrow night live from denver. >>> a scare in the air for american airlines. passengers had a row of seats come loose in midflight. now the airline figured out why. will thomas is everywhere at 11:00. >> american airlines is responding. it says the clasps that hold the seats in place were installed improperly on several planes. so the seats came loose while the planes were up in the air. no one was hurt, but some flights had to be diverted for safety reasons. american airlines is stuck in contract negotiations with a labor union, but officials say the problem is a mechanical issue and not related to the labor problems. >> the results are in. there is no trace of jimmy hoffa's remains in a sample dug up from a driveway near detroit. the teamsters boss vanished 40 years ago. a tipster pointed p
are implementing the debt over the coming years. neil: that is one of the reasons that paul ryan did not vote for it he dodged the tough decision away. he wanted it to be even deeper and address these entitlement costs. but critics say that he is not effectively ceded mr. do you think he does that were changes that initiative tomorrow night? >> i think the governor romney is going to lay out a compelling case our debt problems in the risk of enormous tax hikes on the population that would stagnate growth and put us on a path with increased spending. rising standards of living, and contrasting that with president obama's vision of a social welfare state, moving towards this competent socio- economic expectations. neil: you know the problem may be that mitt romney has, and i mean this in a positive way, he is too smart for words. in other words, he has the iq argument down, but not necessarily the ronald reagan approach out there. so he always sounds like he's walking and talking about it and never explaining about basic human being terms with choking on a 16 trillion-dollar debt means. so it g
and replace. paul ryan is by his side. they have a plan not to hurt anyone 55 and over but as important to look out for the future generations. i have talked to governor romney on multiple occasions. gerri: i really think the conversation about obamacare and look at the polling is that net romney is leading. 47% vs. 43%. it did not start off that way. ball right and went to florida and was there with his mom. did that make the difference ? >> i think it did. do we want a society free enterpriser based on government centered focus? that is the clear choice. 47 million americans are on food stamps. that is unacceptable. one out of six winning in poverty. that is what we have seen under obama. romney and ryan have the vision for our picture. gerri: when you drill down where florida is unemployment is above the national average. a foreclosure rates is one of the worst in the nation. what do these candidates need to say? what is the most important issue? >> jobs and the economy. our governor tries to bring business with jobs and employing people but constantly fighting the federal government
your spirit. this is a video about paul ryan. this is more about his assets as a physically attractive male. >> well, it's important to be in shape. >> check out these videos at our website, rightthisminute.com 2a click on -- >> best of rtm. >>> take a look at this fire that was caught on film by winnipeg news in canada. you see black smoke, but watch. >> oh! >> it's like a volcano!yú rñ th stores fuel. this is near speedway international in winnipeg. it took more than 60 firefighters and 19 fire trucks to help get this under control. as you can imagine, the area surrounding this warehouse was evacuated. fortunately, no injuries were reported. this fire began after close of business on monday. >> those flames were like 200 feet in the air, like big fire clouds. >> this fire required a military foam suppression unit to try to get this under control. this fire caused $15 million in damage. >> oh [ bleep ]. >> this fire was captured by a construction worker and at this point you see a dark black cloud coming from the second story of this home. but look at what happens just a few second
before you get into office. on the other side we all know paul ryan can do the math and he can spend the whole 90 minutes talking about -- >> of course paul ryan isn't the candidate for president. >> paul ryan will get his chance. >> if you endorsed budget, please explain to us how that works. >> well, at least there's a budget. >> he was for and then against it. >> so how should romney answer? our debate all this week has been your argument is he should avoid substance at all costs. so how should romney answer her question then? >> the good news is that the rules don't allow him to speak more than a few seconds. >> actually, two minutes i think. >> so move on to the next issue, the next issue. we're looking for details. you are not going to get details tonight. >> let's be clear, there's 15-minute segments. they have two minutes to respond to the question and then jim lehrer's going to narrate the back and forth. there should be enough time. >> one thing i want to say though is that this is going to be for a bunch of young americans their first chance to vote. a lot of the young ame
. whoever is budget director, paul ryan as vice president, and whoever is the treasury secretary, i would guess twice a day at the white house meeting with senior white house staff. then there would be the rest of the obama administration were i would hope that would be -- a whole bunch of other things could be done in departments that need to be improved from a policy point of view. my sense is that the romney people are very focused on that first six-nine months. if i were advising romney, i would say put them all at the white house, omb, and treasury at the beginning. they need the best, most experienced people to really make those decisions early and to work with congress. i would get a couple people who have served our are very familiar with congress. obviously cannot just dictate to congress. they will need to make that step happen very fast. a very strong white house chief of staff and budget director. it was impressive what they did. being able to get that stuff through, we look at history in retrospect, the fact that reagan did it was pretty startling. >> governor romney is also
's how paul ryan responded. >> i thought he was taking my speech. you know what? we agreed these are being buried by obama care and spending regulations and all things plaguing a business. the way to stop this is to stop this. >> the middle class has been buried for four years. who is to blame? >> that little exchange we saw encapsulates the challenge for president barack obama tonight. he has to defend his record, he's got to take credit for the good things that have happened. i do think the country is headed in the right direction as i think most americans do, but i think he has to acknowledge how the experience is of real americans enough. not only on economic issues but he's not changing the tone in washington, which he's set out to do. i think the president also has to say what to do differently in the next four years. each of these men have to make a case of themselves and articulate the vision they have for the next four years otherwise they won't have a successful evening. >> there's trouble for biden in a new poll. a cnn/orc poll to put up for everyone. 60% of like
by mitt romney and paul ryan. joining us now is congressman peter welsh, who joins us frequently on "varney & company." welcome back, good to see you. >> good to be here. i'm sure we're going to agree that the middle class has indeed been buried. income down about $4,000 in the the last four years for middle america. i say it's because of the pills of stimulus, a massive government spending, and heavy regulation simply has not produced a robust economy which would raise the middle glass. it's subdued the middle class. what's your explanation. >> well, i mean, that's the debate between governor romney and president obama. i mean, you're right. and that's the middle class is really struggling. something that's been true really for 30 years, when you look past what's happened in the middle class the last 30 years, it's basically treading water and it's gotten much tougher in the past four years, and this big debate between the two sides is whether it was, the bush policies, that preceded that president obama that was a major contributing factor or is-- a the romney campaign is tryin
nominee paul ryan seizing onnthe commission to launch attacks at the democratic ticket. >> feature if you turn on the ty you can see that the obama foreign-policy is unraveling before our eyes. it's not just an isolated incident where we lost four americans in libya. that's tragic. but it is partf a bigger story of the unraveling of this agenda all over the world. we have distanced our ally, israel, we are not advancing our interests in the middle east, and the president is promising we will have these devastating cuts to our national defense. ashley: meanwhile the white house engaged in a series of secret talks on the attack on al qaeda. it included the possibility of unilateral military action against al qaeda in the region. yet still american diplomats on the ground in libya denied additional security to ensure their safety. we take up all this right here tonight, we have retired lieutenant colonel, and also, moody's chief economist on why wall street might not care who wins this election. america's security and the obama administration's handling of foreign affairs quickly becoming on
if he was running for election or re-election. >> paul ryan talked about it. he says as conservatives, we are used to media bias. but the desperation of the mainstream media to re-elect barack obama has reached levels we have not seen before. i worry very much that the kind of covering up of hugely important issues, an american ambassador killed in a terror attack that the administration covered up, after it ignored that the threats that he was reporting back to washington. that's very, very serious. when have you a media that won't cover these stories, it begins to really damage, i think, the functioning of our democracy. they have an important role to play and they have abdicalletted responsibility because they have a tingle up their leg over barack obama. >> sean: i think they are the willing accomplices. i think that obama is laughing his ass off because he knows he can manipulate them and get them to say anything he wants. it's fascinating. >> and dangerous. >> sean: liz cheney, thank you. >> thank you. >> sean: coming up next, now that she is not on the campaign trail, calista g
about management and spending efficiency, paul ryan talks mainly about spending cuts as essential, even more so than changing the revenue base. right? >> i mean, i don't want to -- but your system -- >> how the suck eggs. >> that expression. >> what does that mean? >> you won't tell your grandmother how to suck eggs because grandmother knows. >> you know better than i your system with the elections every two years for congress, it is a very different system, we now have legislative fiv five-year terms, parliamentary terms so it is a different issue there. i mean, your challenge, obviously is to get the medium term agreement with the $4 trillion worth of savings that the president is is proposed. >> over ten years. >> over ten years, but you also have got to make sure that in the short-term, you don't strangle your economy. and what i can tell you is our experience is we have strangled our economy. so our debt is going up, when your economy shrinks by definition your debt to gdp ratio, your debt to national income ratio goes up instead of down. >> when we come to the euro zone before i l
, their top surrogates are out on the campaign trail. paul ryan speaking out for romney in iowa. >> a handful of states will determine this outcome. a handful of states will determine which way our country goes. so you not only have a huge responsibility, you have a tremendous opportunity. >> meanwhile, michelle obama has been stumping for her husband, the president, in ohio. >> this election will be even closer than the last one. that is the only guarantee. understand that. >> against that backdrop i sat down with the man who shocked the political establishment when he was elected governor of one of the biggest states of the union, arnold schwarzenegger has always been bigger than life. it all came crashing down in a very big way. i first interviewed him in the early '90s. since then he's had of course seen the end of his marriage to maria shriver and the end of his two terms as governor. he tells the story in graphic detail in his new book, "total recall." arnold schwarzenegger joins me now. welcome. >> thank you. >> try to imagine what it must have been like to be you for the last year. th
, i'm not familiar with it. you also had paul ryan who in his abortion bill, anti-abortion bill basically had the term forcible rape. you had a series of things that have knocked it down to the benefit of the republican -- >> bill: how big -- the country is divided, it's almost more people are pro-life than pro choice. it's like 52-48, according to the latest poll. among just women, do you know what the stat is? >> i don't know the specific stat. but die know without making the sweeping generalization, a lot of women do tend to be single issue voters. at least in the past. the economy is really changed that. >> bill: it's hurting everybody. >> but there are still a significant amount of women who tend to vote single issue on the abortion issue. and that's why traditionally -- >> bill: do they vote the other way, pro-life? >> there are a lot of men in particular who happen to be pro-life. >> bill: i don't know how much -- >> traditionally, the democrats have enjoyed a lead among women because unmarried women tend to be more dependent on the government. >> bill: here is what i car
-acclaimed public speaker with special gifts. as for congressman paul ryan, he's just gushing about the president's skills. >> president obama's a very -- he's a very gifted speaker. the man's been on the national stage for many years, he's an experienced debater. he's done these kinds of debates before. this is mitt's first time on this kind of a stage. >> forget my running mate. the president's the guy to watch but not everyone agrees. >> i know folks in the media are speculating already on who's going to have the best zingers. i don't know about that. you know, who's going to put the most points on the board. >> you are. no, no, governor romney, he's a good debater. i'm just okay. >> so they are praising each other. but something tells me we won't see too many compliments on that stage tonight. joining me now is rick stengle, editor of "time"'s magazine called, who is telling the truth, the fact war. what does governor romney need to do tonight, in your opinion? >> one of the things he needs to do is to seem presidential. one of the things that folks haven't been talking about is if you go bac
in up state new york. paul ryan and vice president biden will have theirs next thursday. you can watch it here on nbc 4. coverage begins at 9:00. will you watch tonight's debate? i will. let us know on the news 4 today facebook page. >>> one of d.c. councilmembers o opponents are raising questions about a group he once ran. he wants the irs to audit the foundation. it lost its tax exempt status in 2010 because it hadn't filed tax returns for the previous three years. michael brown said he hadn't dealt with it since 2008. >>> the humane society is asking for your help for a dog that was stabbed. the 2-year-old dog was stabbed by her owner during a domestic dispute. she's recovering in a local hospital. cocoa will need extensive rehab. she's on a lot of medication. the owner was arrested. more charges could be filed. >>> let's head out to talk to tom kierein about the forecast for today. >> you keeping cool outside on that storm team 4 weather deck? >> you know what? it is rather humid. you wouldn't think it was october. i have a song bird over here serenading me. what's that? what month
. she agrees the president's policies have, quote, buried the middle class. congressman paul ryan hit the campaign trail in iowa tuesday. his stump speech focused on the economy and in an interview with a local tv station, ryan talked about what he called the unraveling of the obama administration's foreign policy. >> iran closer to a nuclear weapon, the russians are thwarting us every step of the world. people around the world sense america is weakening. when we project weakness abroad through the qirve indication of this administration, through the devastating defense cuts they're proposing, that means our enemies, our adversaries become more brazen. they're more willing to test us. >> congressman ryan also called the white house response to the consulate attack in libya, quote, slow and confused. >>> millions of americans will watch tonight's debate by some estimates maybe 50 million. it's in denver again at 9:00. it's just about one in five voters though who might be changing their vote based on what the candidates say in these debates. here's a look at a new poll from our partner
video, "the huffington post" first linked this video to it earlier. paul ryan speaking at a 2011 dinner hosted by "the american spectator." some of the left members say this is like mitt romney's video on the 47%. >> the good news is survey after survey, poll after poll, still shows that we are a center-right 70-30 country. 70% of americans want the american dream. they believe the american idea. only 30% want the welfare state. what that tells us is that at least half those people currently in that category are there not of their wish or their will. >> now liberal websites are focusing on the ryan speech. conservatives are focusing on the obama speech. the "huffington post" ryan reaction was, only 30% want the well stare state just as it is every day on the campaign trail, was one of upward mobility and opportunity for all americans. whether this amounts to anything, joining me is political analyst rowlan martin and eric, let me start with you on this obama tape. to you, what's the significance of it? >> i think the significance of it was the media that portrayed barack obama as a post
in the one presidential debate with paul ryan. >> what do you think of this report that a lot of people think the polls of these two candidates are skewed towards obama, so it looks like all these polls show obama is in the lead and there's a report now saying a lot of those polls are underreporting and oversampling democrats. >> the allegation is there's oversampling of democrats. every poll is different, but there seems to be some real unanimity. i think people will be very surprised if barack obama who seems to be ahead by considerable amounts in swing states, especially ohio and florida which romney needs to win that people will be flabbergasted if it doesn't quite turn out that way. the general election poll in terms of the entire nation 39- 47 is almost tied, but in the state swing polls there seems to be a great difference. so there's a real discrepancy. >> fox 5 political analyst mark plotkin. the debate airs tomorrow at 9:00. you can watch it right here on fox 5. i'll have the wrap-up on the news at 10:00, the news edge at 11:00. >>> a major victory for democrats today. a judge block
of excuses. and on november 6, you are going to put him out of office. [applause] now, paul ryan and i have a different path we will put america on. there are five things we will do to strengthen our economy and create 12 million new jobs and rising take-home pay. you realize over the last four years, every year you have seen the median income in america come down. income is down, and with the median income of $50,000, things are really tough for the american people. the middle-class squeeze has been unbearable. gasoline prices way up, food prices up, electricity prices up, health insurance costs up. the american middle class is struggling under this president, and my plan and paul ryan's plan to create five steps to get this economy going will help middle income americans have a brighter future and if people out of poverty. let me tell you what those steps are. number one, we are going to fully take advantage of our oil, coal, gas, nuclear facilities. [applause] the president has cut in half the number of permits and licenses on federal land. i will make sure you get the resources in alask
. and then the response from his challenger, the vice-presidential candidate, paul ryan. take a listen. >> all kidding aside, with all the boos, we can stop all the malarkey, this is deadly ernest, man. this is deadly earnest. how they can justify, how they can justify raising taxes on the middle class that has been buried the last four years. >> vice president biden just today, said that the middle class over the last four years has been quote, buried. we agree. that means we need to stop digging by electing mitt romney the next president of the united states! [cheers and applause] gregg: republicans didn't waste anytime trying to utilize the biden remark, did they? >> we'll be hearing a lot about that over the next couple weeks. and i can assure you the white house wishes they could reverse time and get biden to say something, anything different from that. but you know, for those us in the press that is the nice thing about joe biden. he is always sort of ad-libbing and giving us great things to write about. gregg: that updates the biden gaffe clock that the rnc always run on their website. paul rya
campaign pounced on the word buried. campaigning in iowa, paul ryan fired back. >> vice president biden just today said that the middle class over the last four years has been, quote, buried. we agree. that means we need to stop digging by electing mitt romney the next president of the united states. >> reporter: later, the vice president did some damage control, clarifying his remarks. >> the middle class was buried by the policies of romney and ryan supported. >> reporter: 24 hours before the start time of tonight's debate late tuesday, conservatives began circulating a 2007 speech by then candidate obama speaking to an african-american audience about victims of hurricane katrina. fox news host sean hannity prominently featured the video as a gotcha moment. >> it contains some of the most divisive class warfare and racially charged rhetoric ever used by barack obama. >> reporter: nbc, along with several other media outlets, covered the same speech at the time. mr. obama spoke at length about the hurricane response. >> people asked me whether they thought race was the reason the respon
are supporting. in clinton, iowa, vice presidential nominee paul ryan said a romney administration would help more americans find jobs. >> we have a jobs crisis in america. wouldn't it be nice to have a job creator in the white house? ( applause ) we can't afford four more years. we need a real recovery. take a look at just jobs. we lost 582,000 manufacturing jobs since the president took office. he's offering a new tax increase on our job creators that will cost us 700,000 jobs. we're offering really forms. >> ifill: whh candidate has thbetterlan to get the economy back on track? that's the key question in battleground states like north carolina, which only months ago seemed out of reach for the democrats this year. but it's back in play again. jeffrey brown traveled there to discover why. >> lead the way. brown: 26-year-old dewayne owens who served in the marines and is now a professional mixeded marshal artist usually takes on tougher opponents than your correspondent. >> i see. brown: but this weekend on a break from training at the gym in durham, he offered a few pointers >> when i kick
this video to it earlier today, paul ryan speaking at a 2011 dinner hosted by the american spectator, con serbtive magazine and this sounds a lot like mitt romney's comment on the 47%. >> the good news, still shows survey after survey, shows 70% of americans believe in the american dream, only 30% want the welfare state. half of the people currently in the category are there not of their wish or their will. >> liberal websites are focusing on the ryan speech, and the huffington post says they learned of a clip because a reader. ryan's campaign says only 30% want the welfare state, just as it is every day on t campaign trail, and the size trail, and so let's talk about this, whether these videos amount to anything. and political analyst roland martin, and red state.com and professor boise watkins of syracuse university. eric, on the obama tape, to you, what is the significance of it? >> the circumstances of it is the media. it was the media that portrayed barack obama as a post racial president. the media has portrayed barack obama above the political rhetoric that both -- here is barack o
than half knew that paul ryan is the republican vice presidential nominee. the director of the annenberg center, kathleen hall jamieson, our master media decoder is back with us. welcome. >> thank you. >> so who's responsible for the widespread unawareness or ignorance that you report in your survey? is it the candidate, the media, or the voter? >> it's all three. and fortunately, we have the opportunity with presidential debates to do something that reliably increases knowledge. we've been studying presidential debates for a long time as a scholarly community. and to our surprise, we consistently find that those who watch debates, regardless of the level of knowledge they come in with, come out with more accurate knowledge as a general group. and they do this because those who haven't paid a great deal of attention have a lot to learn. those of us who've paid a lot of attention still missed things. the news may have covered something one day and we weren't paying a whole lot of attention. or maybe we got one candidates' position and we missed the other candidate. in the
. the arithmetic just doesn't add up. paul ryan had the opportunity to speak to it this weekend and said he didn't have time to do that. so there are a lot of questions out there. we would love to know how he's going to pay for $5 trillion tax plan for millionaires and billionaires and not leave the burden on the middle class. >> barbara, let me ask that question specifically. is there a plan for how mitt romney will respond to that question? that, you know, the tax policy center, it's a nonpartisan group, people served in both democrat and republican administrations, has concluded -- and there do appear to be things that can change. but has concluded to have a revenue-neutral tax plan, you would have to raise some taxes on the middle class. is mitt romney going to get specific on that or say it doesn't have to be revenue-neutral, or how specific will he get? >> that's a totally discredited study. and we are cutting taxes on all people. in fact, it's barack obama's policies which actually we don't know what they are, and jen just didn't tell you. i mean, we have talked about key stone pipeline o
admission that the middle-class has been hurt by the obama administration's policies. congressman paul ryan pounced. >> of course the middle-class has been buried, buried by regulations, buried by taxes, buried by borrowing, they're being buried by the obama administration's economic failures. >> biden later tried to dig himself out. >> the middle class was buried by the policies of romney and the ryan supported. >> reporter: except for debate prep, a politics-free day for contenders. romney had lunch at chipotle. president obama paid a visit to the hoover dam. both have spent hours in debate sessions and both have challenges. aide say the president is working on keeping his answers short to not sound like professor obama. in order to win over undecided voters, romney needs to appear relatable and offer specifics on his agenda. >> he has to find something more than just discussing how bad the economy is or blaming the president for how much the economy continues to struggle. >> reporter: all the prep works come done to just 90 minutes. both candidates, one stage in a high-stakes showdown. k
romney's proposed with paul ryan an ambitious reformation of the program that would go to voucher, but he hasn't said what the level of the voucher would be or the growth rate in the voucher. if you don't specify that, you can't specify what your savings will be or the impact on consumers. and finally president obama last year in the grand bargain talks with house speaker boehner talked about more ambitious proposals than medicare than he's advocated so far like raising the eligibility age from 65 to 67. hasn't said a word about that in the election campaign so far. you can expect the two to clash on that issue, as well. >> john, i know you've looked at some poll numbers from the journal and nbc news. maybe a slight tightening on a national level. but certainly in some important states like ohio, the president continues to lead. i know you've said the romney strategists believe they need ohio. if it's mathematically possible to win without it, why do they still believe they need it? >> well, because if you don't win ohio, you're probably not going to win, say, wisconsin, which is another
with. and that's going to be very much mike levin, chief of white house staff, paul ryan as vice president who knows a heck of a lot about this and whoever is the treasury secretary meeting twice a day i would guess at the white house at 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. with senior white house staff and maybe the hhs secretary needs to be in as many. and everyone else is getting their asses and sectors confront a getting to know the authorizing committees on the. than the rest of the romney administration were hoping would move to more of a modernizing government and a whole bunch of other things that could be done in a bunch of departments which we need to be approved. but i do think at least my sense is the romney people and i think you're right about this, very focused on the first six, nine months. if you want to do that you do need a extremist on white house and omb control. if i were advising romney i would say here are my best a people, put them all in the white house, only be and treasury at the beginning. they need the best most expense people who, you know, to really make those decisio
think that can't be very much the white house chief of staff the budget director paul ryan as vice president who knows a lot about this and whoever is the treasury secretary meeting twice a day i would guess that the white house at 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. with senior white house staff and maybe the secretary gets to be in those meetings for a big part of it and everyone else is sort of, you know, getting their secretary confirm and getting to know the law authorizing committees on the hill and the rest of the administration i would hope they would move to more of a modernizing government and a whole bunch of other things that can be done in the department which really need to be approved before the policy point of view and execution and the administration point of view but i do think my sense they are right about this and very focused on the first six to nine months. if you want to do that you these extremely strong white house controls and if i were advising you are my best people i would sit in at the white house and when the treasury at the beginning. we want to beat cabinet secretari
of questions for biden on the debate stage against paul ryan who is famous for his command of budget details. biden's best threat is simply to stick to the script. >> hard to stick to the script sometimes. thank you, bill plante. >>> donnie wahlberg toured with the new kids on the block this summer. hi, donnie. his latest stop is our green room. we'll ask him about reviving his boy band days and his new hit show, "bluebloods." you're watching cbs "this morning". did you take my truck out last night? 'tis tasty. >>> cats may have nine lives but we have a story of two dogs who may be the ultimate survivor. >> one of the dogs met up with a car on the east coast the other had trouble with a truck on the west coast. terrell brown reports it's incredible they are both alive. >> reporter: since the invention of the automobile the relationship between man and dog has been doomed. >> poor little guy. probably kept up with you for a mile or so. tough little mutt. >> reporter: the topic found its way to the campaign trail as one late night dog lover won't let the nominee forget. >> it's not like i put
. >> steve: he did. >> brian: the other thing is the president had to get prepared for the debate. paul ryan and joe biden had to carry their weight. it didn't really work too well. >> steve: you know how mitt romney prepared yesterday out in denver for the debate. he had the burrito bowl at chipotle. >> brian: right. >> steve: he said he usually goes with a burrito, but yesterday. >> martha: burrito bowl. let's get a look at some headlines this morning. there are concerns today that the obama administration may be looking to move some of the gitmo detainees to american soil. the federal government plans to buy the thompson correctional center in illinois. at one point this prison was considered for housing gitmo detainees and there was a huge controversy based around that. many lawmakers outraged saying it would open the door for ultimately carrying out a gitmo transfer. house speaker john boehner said this, the unilateral decision to purchase the thompson prison, even though congress repeatedly opposed the obama administration's effort to use the taxpayer funds to do so, underscores the ad
as they should in any election. governor romney chose paul ryan and his running mate. he is relatively young by you look at what he stands for. he wants to change medicare as we know it. he uses all kind of and tries to come across like the boy next door. you have to look at the question of why governors -- governor romney is invested so heavily. guest: thanks for the call. in our research, young people are very concerned at issues and looking for information on issues. in 2008, young people said their position on issues was more important than character responsibility are looking for someone who can understand the issues and the variances they have the also, our research has shown that they are caught and sent a worthy of liberation. we hear the young people are looking to places they trust for information. young people are very careful to know about things. -- they areg to get looking to get information from the people in their lives. there are members of the family who they respect. young people are very cognizant of where they get their information and very critical. >> you have talked a
in the american idea. only 30% want the welfare state. >> so, again, just context for our viewers that was paul ryan, this is a speech from last november. the whole speech has been on youtube since last fall. so my question to you, howie kurtz, are there really substantive points to be scored here by drudging up these all videos? >> there can be. i don't have any problem with it, people on either side drudging up old videos. it helps if the video you're drudging up has never been seen or heard before, then it has some shock value. there can be substantive and revealing comments in what people say when they think the spotlight is not on them. but in the case of this particular obama speech at hampton university in virginia in 2007, he delivered it in front of a bunch of reporters. cameras there. the surprise factor has been lost here. >> you covered the media. as we mentioned it right wing radio, right wing conservative television today, pointing at the -- it is the mainstream media, this is all the mainstream media, my question is, their ratings are high, they bring in the big bucks, aren't the
